Signs and Symbols From The Universe

“The universe is always offering signs to help you

on your journey, you just need to

slow down and pay attention.” ~Dr. MoNique

The Universe, God, Creator and Your Divine Council often communicate with you through signs and symbols. Sometimes, we miss the messages because we don’t slow down long enough to consider what may or may not be communication from our higher guidance. How often have you asked the universe for direction, yet failed to recognize the signs it sent in response to your questions?  I know I have. I can recall several times in my life when I received guidance from my Divine Council, but because I couldn’t see a clear path or didn’t know what the destination was going to be, I ignored the signs.  For example, one morning during meditation I asked my guides to help me connect with more people in my business.  I received a message that I should start a weekly program.  I didn’t give it much thought because I couldn’t clearly see how a program was going to help me reach my goal. Over the course of a few years, the messages to start a program became stronger, but I still wasn’t sure why having a weekly program would help me to connect with more people.  Finally in the middle of the night, I was awakened by my Spirit Guides and this time the message was loud and clear, start the program and the next steps would be revealed.  The following Sunday, I started Your Weekly OM, a Sunday morning online program that helps listeners connect with their Divine Council of Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides through guided meditation.  From this one program, I have created meditation audio programs, started writing a book and connected with people from all over the world.


We all have been blessed with a spiritual gateway that allows our higher guidance to communicate with us directly. You don’t have to be born with a special gift to communicate with your Divine Council. When you first start building a direct relationship with your Council, they will often communicate with you by using symbols and signs.  These signs my show up in a variety of places – in a grocery store reading magazine headlines while in line, as you are driving down the street and suddenly read a street sign or billboard.  One day you might be talking to someone when something they say gives you an inspiring thought that leads you to the guidance you are seeking.  Learning the subtle language of signs from your higher guidance can help you interpret the messages the universe sends your way. To be able to understand the information relayed over that connection, however, it is necessary that we learn to pay attention and know what to look for. To see and correctly interpret signs and symbols, you must open your heart and mind to your Divine Council and invite its guidance into your life in the form they feel is best. Many of us are blind to the signs we receive because we expect our Angels, Ancestors and Spirit Guides to speak to us in a booming voice and tell us exactly what we need to hear.  For some, with practice and commitment, you can hear the voice of your Guides and feel their energy, but that isn’t necessary to receive powerful and meaningful messages from your higher guidance.  Working with your Divine Council and establishing a relationship with your guides is like any developing relationship. It takes time to develop and the more you connect and communicate, the deeper the relationship and the easier it is to understand each other. 


Your Divine Council can communicate with you in a number of ways.  It may be in your dreams, while you are journaling, or during meditation, but there are also less subtle ways that they can send you messages too.  In the beginning, the signs which are of this earth are easier to see and hear. A song replaying in your head can be a sign. Lyrics from a song can often be the answers to your questions.  If you have a favorite song, listen to the lyrics for answers.  If you keep hearing the same song over and over, or you hear it everywhere you go, stop and listen to the lyrics. The message might be in the lyrics or the song may just open up your creative energy and answers will flow. 


Have you ever had a number that seems to pop up everywhere you look?  I have.  Lately I’ve been waking up at 33 after the hour – 3:33 AM, 5:33 AM.  What can this mean?  Perhaps the numbers are the answer to a question about finances.  Journaling is a great way to follow the numbers.  Make a list of all the places and ways the number continues to show up.  Analyze your journal for clues.


Messages from Your Divine Council can show up in a variety of ways.  The key is to be open to the possibilities, billboard signs, books, or even conversations with friends or strangers. Signs may come through the animal world, or jump out of a book in the form of an insightful passage. A sign may be a direct answer to one of your questions. Other signs may point you in the right direction, warn of impending difficulties, or show you a different way. If you want the universe, God, The Creator and Your Divine Council to send you a sign, tell them that you are ready and willing to accept the guidance. Ask them to help you. Be receptive and open to seeing, feeling or hearing their messages even if it isn’t exactly what you want to hear. Not everything you hear or see will be a sign. If you are receptive and patient, however, the signs you receive will become easier to recognize. It is important to listen to your intuition. The signs and symbols you receive from your higher guidance may have a different meaning for you than they do for someone else. Only you can decipher what a sign’s meaning is for you. As you practice reading the signs and following your higher guidance, the universe will send more messages your way.
